Cook the lentils. I usually soak them for 12 hours, but when I forget, I simly soak them for a few hours in boling water.
Befor cooking, drained them and add to a pot with salt, cumin cumin powder, ¼ onion and 2 cups of water.
Cook the mushrooms. I wash and cut them. In a pan add oil, add the mushrooms, salt and let cook. Put them aside.
In a hot pan with oil, add the celery chopped in small pieces, same as the carrot, onion and tomato. Once the vegetables are soft I puree them in a blender. If needed add a splash of water or bone broth. Trasfer the puree back to the pan and let simmer.
Take a smaller pan and add a drizzle of oil, add chopped onion. Once it is cooked take the pan off the heat and add the paprika and stir. Add the puree and let simmer. The sauces will thicken.
Taste to adjust with salt or sugar if needed. The sugar will balance the acidity.
Once it simmered for 5 minutes add the mushrooms and lentiles and stir.
Cook your favourite pasta and add the sauce. Enjoy!
